Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2015
'The Body Tree', a thriller produced by FishCorb Films and Loreto Rodríguez, has moved into post-production. Rodríguez, former head of development and in-house producer at Drimtim Entertainment -helmers of Ben Hur‘s mini-series adaption acquired by ABC-, described the storyline of 'The Body Tree' as revolving around a group of Americans who become entangled in a plot that threatens their lives while making a visit to Siberia to honor the memory of their murdered friend.
"We’re very pleased with the performances we received from our cast and that the project is moving on schedule," Rodríguez said. "'The Body Tree' is an excellent addition to FishCorb Films’ slate of pictures and I’m very pleased to have been involved with it."
Directed by Thomas Dunn, 'The Body Tree' stars Erica Dasher, Emma Dumont and Kyle Jones. The film was part of Rodríguez’s collaboration with FishCorb Films, founded by producers Roger Corbi and Yan Fisher-Romanovsky.
Rodríguez joined Corbi and Fisher-Romanovsky after producing six films with Drimtim Entertainment. She produced Lifetime’s first Latin-oriented movie, 'Lies in Plain Sight' in conjunction with the company; it was winner of the 2011 NAMIC Vision Awards for Original Movie or Special and a nominee for the 2011 Imagen Foundation Awards’ Best Primetime Television Program. Helmed by critically-acclaimed director Patricia Cardoso, 'Lies in Plain Sight' starred Martha Higareda, Chad Michael Murray, Rosie Perez, Benito Martinez and Daniela Bobadilla
In addition, Rodríguez produced FishCorb’s 'Seve', a biopic about renowned champion golfer Severiano Ballesteros that was recently released in the UK and in Spain last month. Her future projects include 'Brutus', a feature film project based on a short from director Konstantin Fam’s 'Witnesses' trilogy. Konstantin Fam’s holocaust trilogy WITNESSES has won fans and critical acclaim all over the world. 'Shoes', a short from the series, was one of two films submitted by his country for Academy Award consideration.
Acclaimed producer Loreto Rodríguez is working with FishCorb Films to remake into a feature length film another of Fam’s WITNESSES shorts, 'Brutus'. 'Brutus' is the powerful story of a house dog, owned by a Jewish family, that is trained and transformed into a vicious killer at the hands of the Nazis.
"The WITNESSES trilogy of shorts are poignant and gut-wrenching — but it’s filmmaking at its best. Fam is a master of his craft and I look forward to bringing 'Brutus' to a wider audience through the version we’re working on and building awareness of who Fam is as well as his body of work," Rodríguez said.
"I’m looking forward to bringing entertaining and thought-provoking films with FishCorb Films," she added.
